A cash-strapped Little League in Los Angeles County will return a surprise $1,200 donation from a strip club that appeared to save its season.
League President Roberto Aguirre said the league's board of directors decided to return the money donated two weeks ago by Jet Strip gentlemen's club, according to the Daily Breeze newspaper of Torrance, Calif.
The league needs the money to rent fields from the Lennox School District, which doubled fees to play on its baseball diamonds. As news of the strip club's donation spread, contributions came from around the country. Aguirre said the league still needs help.
Lennox is a poor, unincorporated neighborhood near the Los Angeles International Airport. The league offers a payment plan so families can afford the annual $85 per-player fee.
